I'm always very curious when I hear about these amazing super cleaning tips and tricks on Pinterest. Sometimes they just seem too good to be true.
I tried the DIY drain unclogger. That was a mega fail. Then again, it WAS a mega drain blockage that the plumber had to cut away part of the pipe to remove. I have heard others try this vinegar and baking soda technique with very little success. So I'm going to call that one a pinterest myth.
Then I tried the DIY silver jewelry cleaner. Oh and yay verily, it rocked mine little world. There's nothing like being able to wear your favorite jewelry you thought was ruined. A huge mega success if there ever was one.
As I currently have a 50/50 success rate, I figured giving the stainless steal de-gunker tip from Tales and Tips from A Real-Life Housewife was worth a shot. The tip is to take a few tablespoons of Cream of Tartar and mix it with a few drops of water to make a paste. Then you just scrub away.
Here is what I had to work with:
Here is the after:
I'd have to say this was a pinterest fact. The tip didn't say anything about rusty stains, just greasy ones.
Now all I have to do is figure out how to get rid of the rust on the tea kettle! Please let me know your suggestions. I love this kettle and am sick of how gross it looks!
